The Dunamis Word: The "Good Book" The Bible Of Humanism

I appreciate Elder Harvey Burnett posting this article on this publication I hadn't heard about: The "Good Book".

Anthony Graylings book called "The Good Book" is currently being promoted to support the efforts and the agenda of materialism and materialists everywhere. In a book styled after the Bible, which is known as the best selling book in history, the "Good Book" as it is called comes replete with chapter, verse and language similar to the King James Version of the Bible. Simply put, it is a Bible without God and one that is centered on man.

Genesis 1:1 ~ "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth."

The Good Book ~ “All things take their origin from earlier kinds: Ancestors of most creatures rose from the sea, some inhabitants of the sea evolved from land-dwelling forefathers.”

The question I have is this: If the Bible is such an obvious failure and not worthy of attention, why would a humanist want to parody it. After reading Elder Burnett's remarks, it seems strange to me - like it is an attempt to fill the vacancy rejecting God leaves in the lives of those who deny God's will. More proof the we really need to pray.

  1. Richard Dawkins,
    "we are survival machines - robot vehicles blindly programmed to preserve the selfish molecules known as genes."

    Tom Robbins,
    "Humans were invented by water as a means of transporting itself from place to place."

    Genesis 1:27,
    "God created man in His image; in the image of God He created him. He created them male and female."

  2. I'm not sure if the "appeal to what sounds nicer" is a formal fallacy, but it should be.

  3. I doubt that is the question Mariano is asking. The question is "Which is true?"

  4. The question is "Which is true?"

    By appealing to which sounds "nicer"...

  5. Actually, that's his whole schtick.

  6. No, by forcing you to find out which is true.
